Has anyone had a three level Thoracic Fusion. I am going to have a three level and possible four level thoracic fusion in the coming month. I have already had two cervical fusions, April 07, C6-7 and Feb 09 C7-T1. In October 07 I had full anterior posterior L4-L5, L5-S1.
I am a bit more scared to have the Thoracic. i have heard some great stories but alot of horror stories. I am only 34. I am very athletic and always determined not to be down and out for long after surgery. I usually am playing golf and softball two months post-op.
Please let me know have had thoracic surgery. I want to know what to expect in the hospital as well as recovery. By far the L4-S1 was the hardest pain wise.
